Milwaukee saw works great.
I bought the saw to use occasionally in cutting dimensional lumber. It has worked well for my needs and I usually have good luck with Milwaukee products.

Of corse it took Milwaukee to make a real cordless circular saw!
Beautiful precision design, cuts fine molding to 2X lumber in a breeze. Exceptional construction that inspired me to give away a couple of other beaters that weren't much better than a hand saw or needed a 20 battery charger to keep them going. One of my most used M12s. I love blowing my employees minds when they start to look for an electrical outlet & hand them this little saw telling them to quit wasting time & go on the roof to complete the repair. Its a good thing it won't cut a 4x4 or they would probably neglect my Milwaukee corded 7-1/4'' circulars & Variable speed reciprocating saws! Milwaukee, "taking the future by storm!"

Great saw for the price
I picked up the saw due to doing a home renovation. The saw is great for doing quick cuts right on the spot. It's so light and portable you can go anywhere with it. My only complaint is currently I only have the original 12v batteries and they don't last long when ripping OSB. Picked up the newer bigger battery and works like a charm

Good compact saw
Because my truck had all my tools cleaned out I had to buy all new. I thought about upgrading to 18 volt but because i still had 12v batteries replaced with same. Wanted this saw to add.I had one 18 volt dewalt wth nicad and never used it. The milwaukee is great battery lasts much longer than i expected. I do find that if you get a little off track ths blade binds and stops as i use more hapens less.

Nice Saw for Small Jobs
A good saw for use in small projects or in locations away from power outlets. It won't compete with 18/24v saws, but a nice addition for M12 tool users. Don't expect to go all day or make very fast cuts, that's not what it's for. Also, you need to use a 3 or 4 Ah battery to not be frustrated with its power consumption. You won't like it if you expect to get by using the standard 2 Ah M12 batteries.

My favorite saw ever
Working on a new deck, and I was using a 7 1/4" saw, this one is so might lighter and lower impact. With the 4 Ah REDLITHIUM Lithium-Ion Battery, it seems to just go forever. I'll never go back to corded tools again. Love it.

powerful, light weight saw, a winner
This is a great saw with power to spare. It can handle 2x4's with ease. This saw is very light and is more than adequate for the work I do around the home. It being so light takes the fatigue out of ripping 2x4's and plywood. If I need to cut larger lumber than 2x4's, or need to cut outdoors for an extended period of time, I will bring out my AC powered 7 1/4 inch circular saw. Great combination of weight and power. It would have been nice if it came with a guide to attach to the frame since it has the attachment points for it. I use it with the XC4.0 batteries which should give it plenty of cutting time (have not verified this yet, though).

Can I use my battery for this? #48-11-2401
Craziedusa on Jun 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, all the M12 batteries will work, thought you'll probably want a bigger battery, or more than on of those if you are doing a lot of cutting.

What is the depth of cut for the 5 3/8" circular saw?
JoeCarpentor on Apr 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Depth of cut is advertised as 1.5". I've actually found it a TINY bit
deeper than that, which has come in handy occasionally. Like maybe 1/16th
over that. So approximately 1.563"

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
